Acupuncture provides excellent treatment for acute or chronic pain. Acupuncture releases endorphins (our body's own pain-killers) from the anterior pituitary gland and stimulates immune response. Acupuncture and herbs reduce inflammation and increase circulation.
Many research have demonstrated that patients with acute pain respond extremely well to acupuncture treatment (approximately 6-10 treatments) and that chronic conditions require more treatment to have significant improvement. Patients who had taken analgesics before acupuncture therapy has been able to either discontinue them completely, or reduce their doses dramatically.
If you have experienced trauma and pain from an accident, please note that research also supports the use of acupuncture for after-treatment of accident patients. Acupuncture presents a valuable therapeutic option - resulting in reduced pain, decreased edema, increased range of motion and reduction of long standing complaints following accidents.
Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, natural and drug-free alternative that can provide immediate relief and long-lasting benefits. It can help you return to peak performance and optimal health by restoring the proper flow of Qi and blood. This speeds recovery time, addresses the root cause of the problem, enhances performance and can help prevent future injury.
Through the insertion of very fine, sterile needles at specific points, acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own natural pain killers (endorphins), natural anti-inflammatory and anti-stress hormones. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture promotes physical and emotional well-being.
